In real life, you may have met or seen people who don’t like to talk too much or find it difficult to speak with others but it does not mean that they don’t like to take part in a conversation. Actually, they feel either feel shy to take part in a chat because they don’t know much about real-life situations or they think people may ignore them as they rarely take part in a conversation and for a limited time. These two are valid reasons which make those people quiet most of the time during social gatherings, festivals and celebrations but it does not mean that you cannot make them speak.
I have made a list of 25 questions for you which will guide you how to make quiet people speak but to do this, you must ask those questions in a way so that they don’t think you are interviewing them. In other words, they should think you are taking interest in their speech and want to chat more with them by asking questions to them and listening to their replies. To do this, you should carefully listen to what they say in reply when you ask questions to them. Carefully listening to them will require you to watch their body languages, hear tone of voices and being thoughtful to whom you are talking with. If those people replied to you positively and also shared their thoughts and feelings on your asked questions; then, you are right to think that you have achieved your mission: “Make Them Speak”.
